Description of key information

The biological elimination of FAT 36038/C showed 98 % of degradation after 28 days, according to a guideline which is equivalent or similar to OECD test guideline 303 A (confirmatory test).

The BOD5/COD quotient calculated using data from several individual studies (BOD: 42 mg/g O2; COD: 1120 mg O2/g) is less than 0.5, indicating the test substance as not rapidly biodegradable.

Therefore, the test substance FAT 36038 is considered to be not readily biodegradable.
